    I just posted a reply in a topic on foreign language films, so I was wondering if anyone here gets into foreign language music? I've heard some music from artists who speak different languages. One band I listen to no matter the language barrier is Alcest, check out one of their newer songs below:

    Alcest - Voix Sereines

    Could you listen to music like this? What artists do you like that only sing in a different tongue? Share them here if you like.

    Well english is foreign for me and i only listen to it. :o

    As about other languages music ... can't say i really dig it. It's just weird. I can even count the songs i like in my own language. There aren't many romanian bands out there that i can honestly put up with. And most of the songs I listen I probably do so because of nostalgia.

    it doesn't bother me in the slightest, usually. There's a song on Nightwish's Once that's sung in Finnish and I find it just isn't musical at all though

    Nightwish-Kuolema tekee taiteilijan (lyrics)

    however this one in Norwegian by Solefald sounds terrific to me (there's other songs in the same album in French and German and they sound great too)

    Solefald - Nutrisco et Extinguo

    I'm living in Nicaragua right now, so all I listen to is foreign language music. I'm actually kind of digging it. These Latinos are very passionate about their music. If you're in a bar and a ballad comes on, you'll have three or four Latinos singing out loud. My favorite here though is that Latino Rap that some of these guys are putting out. I can only catch every other word, but the music is great.

    I like bands that sing in Spanish and in Swahili since I speak both languages. Well, I'm elementary level in Swahili.

    I like some German bands. Like Rammstein. And Japanese rock, like Back-On.
